Bob's trademark is very minimalistic and very rarely uses color because he shoots and edits his pictures in black and white. Bob became famous shooting in jazz clubs and his black and white shots caught everyone's eye. Somehow with the lack of color and busy details, he captured every droplet of sweat and every freckle. Though he did not win any big awards, his photos are still well known and breathtaking.
"Just Look at It"
Bob was known to be very humble, but after seeing the success before the very famous Audrey Hepburn photo of her film Breakfast at Tiffany's was released, people would ask if it was good, or ok, Bob would reply "just look at it."
I appreciate Bob's simplistic concept that he uses. Even in his color photos, he keeps colors very minimal and I really love it.
